Champion Schools kick off in West Wales

As this years West Wales under 14s 15s and now 16s development squad have begun training the start of Champion Schools was a great place to see what talent was on offer as Strade took on Bryngwyn at year 8 level at Strade School.

With all three West Walescoaching staff (Jon Ellis,Andrew Thorne and Peter Tiffin) present it was great to see as both schools are also going to work closely with weekly sessions to progress further with their rugby league.

As the game was a first between both schools it was great to see how much each player gave everything that they had to offer. There was some great attacking plays from both schools but Strade seemed to find more gaps in the defence to make the score 16-4 at half time.

With a quick talk from the West Wales coaching staff to both schools Strade continued to put pressure on the Bryngwyn defence scoring two more tries in the first ten minutes making the score 26-4 with 15 minutes remaining. Bryngwyn were told to utilise their kicking selection on their last tackle at half time and after 15 minutes of the second half they finally did this and made strade feel the pressure and knocked on deep in their own half,from a quick play bryngwyn scored under the post and seemed to gain confidence by scoring again from the following kick off,it was a shame as it was too late but made the final score a little closer with it finishing Strade 26-16 Bryngwyn.

The coaching staff were really impressed with the talent on show and explained that with more sessions it will be interesting to see them involved with the West Wales set up this season.

Training each week for West Wales under 14s,15s and 16s development squad shall be on a Sarurday 9 am - 12:30 (14 & 15s 9-10:45) (16s-11-12:30). The venue is currently at Strade School but shall be changing to a brand new base starting in December.
